Backtracking to two contrasting views from the train ride between Vancouver and Toronto. (These photos were taken on a speeding, jostling train through rather dirty windows.)
This was the view of Mt. Robson (the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies).
And here’s a shot of the Saskatchewan landscape–flat in all directions for hundreds of miles. (Note: this shot was taken in the late afternoon while the train was rolling along at full speed. I used TV mode with the shutter set speed set to 1/640″ to “freeze” the foreground.)
